Happy Labor Day!

Labor Day always makes me sad.  It marks the end of my favorite season, summer, and it means beach days are coming to an end.  But I make myself feel a little better by being productive on Labor Day--and actually laboring.  I am putting myself to work completing my kids' room.  I am hanging PBKid's Personalized Growth Charts (were $99, now $79.)  Getting a lot done today makes me feel a little better!

Rachel's a Hostess with the Mostess!


Daybeds are a MUST for a guest room/office. You know what I'm talking about, right? It's that dreaded room that's last on the design to-do list but still desperately needs a workable solution to keep visitors happy as well as you. Thankfully we have your solution - the daybed. And the Aiden Daybed from Ballard is a stylish option which is now an affordable one, on sale for $799 down from $1299.  Now go make mom happy with a lovely new place to sleep!

Betsy Gets Benched

I rarely select a sofa in a bright color as it is not as versatile.  But I almost always choose a side chair or a banquette in a bold as the pop makes a fun statement for less expense.  So I was drawn to World Market's Emerald Marian Loveseat the minute it went on sale (now $449, was $499).

Rachel Gets Greenery for Very Little Green


West Elm's Chalkboard Planters are a fun way to grow and display potted herbs in your kitchen or on your window sill.  For us New Yorkers, it couldn't hurt to add some extra greenery into our lives, so maybe think about picking up these lovelies.  They are on sale for as little as $0.97 down from as high as $16.

Spicy, Inspired Design!

I get design inspiration from many places, including the fridge.  My friend, Grace Lee, just started a business making kimchi, and it's delicious!  The spicy sour tang gave me a much-needed Friday jolt.  Check her out and try some for yourself--homemade and affordable!  Email me at betsy@affordableinteriordesign.com for the details.

Kelsey Finds Cute Kid Decor


Kids have a habit of taking over every room in the house so why not make their belongings a part of the decor? The Land of Nod's adorable Looking Glass Chairs work great for a play space while still adding an elegant accent to any home. They were $99, now only $38.97!

Beaded Beauty

I'm a sucker for a colorful pillow.  Heck, I am a sucker for almost anything bold and bright.  So, of course, I am going to love Pottery Barn's Multi-Colored Beaded Pillow.  I love it even more now that it's $38 (was $49).
